Second in a trilogy about a family with rare and dangerous powers. As in the previous novel, I have had difficulty in differentiating some of the characters at times. Nevertheless, a powerful story that takes fantasy into another realm - one that includes serious themes (abuse, environment among others). "...no part of this comm gets to decide that any other part of this comm is expendable. No voting who gets to be people...This is a community. You will be unified. You will fight for each other." ( )

An excellent continuation of the series. The story gets a bit bogged down at times with the interpersonal stuff, but as with the first book, the end is excellent. ( )
